Hello there, as you have glaucoma, the only way to prevent further glaucomatous damage to your optic nerve is only by intra ocular pressure control. Kindly ask your doctor if your pressures are under control with these medicines. Based on the info you have given pressures below 15mm Hg might be needed to be maintained constantly . If it is not achieved, then you can consider surgery as the last option.
